Sorry. Maybe I forgot to say that it was a migration.

I had homeDirectory and unixHomeDirectory in my LDAP before, which pointed 
both to /home/username, for every user. But it wasn't migrated.

But other attributes that are still used in s4/AD, are also not migrated like 
sn, givenName, mail, etc.

Also it would be nice, if the migration process could also migrate the 
profilePath and homeDrive if present in the old s3 directory. And if this 
attributes are empty for an user, maybe the values could be taken from the s3 
smb.conf, if "logon path", "logon drive",... are set globally.

It would be a very usfull feature for admins if the migration script could be 
enhanced for that, because I guess many have additional attributes or at least 
use roaming profiles and home drives.
